We were upstairs in a room down the hall, which I highly recommend because it was much more quiet than the 1st floor. Got the chowder as well as a half dozen oysters. We also had the filet and ribeye plus asparagus, Mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes. All amazing!

Superb unforgettable steak!
Grill 23 is one of our go-to spots for celebrating special occasions. The cap steak is decadently good, but I'd recommend the 100 year aged rib eye. Our appetizers were delicious--steak tartar
flavorful with complimenting accompaniments. I love the duck confit, it had an interesting presentation. We loved our waiter, Paul, he was attentive as well as entertaining!

Grill 23 & Bar Never Disappoints.... hands down the best steaks in Boston. The service is 1st class and the wine list = 1000+ to choose from... need I say more... The 100-day aged prime ribeye was outstanding, perfectly cooked and was even more savory when combined with an order of Sashito Peppers with Goat Cheese... I'm still tasting that meal... Can't wait to go back again...

We decided to sit at the bar for dinner, we are bar people, that being said, had to ask the bartender for bread to go with our salads, and it was weird, he must have known the people next to us at the bar, as he kept talking to them, it felt like we were interrupting to ask for anything. We weren't aware there was a bar upstairs as well, when we checked in, the gal at the Hostess/Host station never told us, or asked do you want upstairs or down, knowing we were visiting from out of town, so somewhat disappointed, when you spend $300 on dinner you expect just a little more, and my favorite restaurant for food and service has always been The Palm, was sorry we didn't just go there. After recommendation from a friend that grew up in Boston and lived there and goes back often, was disappointed.

Wonderful dinner tonight for our anniversary. The steaks were fantastic, and the service was attentive and personable. The restaurant was quiet - which makes sense for a Monday night - but also well appointed and comfortable.

I was extremely disappointed in the food this time around. It was my birthday dinner with 10 of my closest girlfriends this past Saturday night . Four of us, including myself, had to send back our steaks. A medium rare steak should never come out well done and tough at a nice steak house. I ended up having some of my other friends steak and not getting another one because I was so upset. I was extremely embarrassed by this experience on my special day. It did not set the bar for any of my other experiences at Grill 23.

Everything about Grill 23 is first class, I wouldn't change anything. The attention to detail is second to none and the food is a perfect 10. My wife and I have dined at Grill 23 three times in the last month alone and have enjoyed each time thoroughly. The managers, wait staff and bartenders really give the patron a true feeling that they care about their experience, a real team effort.

Dinner at Grill 23 is always fabulous.. Took my husband there for his 50th birthday and it was as lovely an experience as we had expected. The cocktails were perfect, dinners tasty and cooked exactly as ordered, our server was a pro - efficient, pleasant and attentive. A great evening out.

I went there for my birthday. It was also one day before my wedding, so the night was also a bachelor dinner with my close friends and family. We had a great time! Grill 23 has a semi-private area called the Alcove and that's where we were. The staff was very helpful to my wife who organized the night. They were also very responsive to emails and calls. We appreciate that. We loved the food, loved the semi-private area we had, and the wait staff were all courteous. Great night overall!

We got exactly what we were hoping for - a very good traditional steak house experience. Food was great and service was great. Nothing to complain about...They even brought a complimentary dessert for our son for his birthday.

100 day dry-aged Ribeye is one of those 100 things you eat before you die! Third visit and it's just as superb as the first time my boyfriend and I had two years ago. Thank you, Grill 23, for another the excellent dinner. I brought my daughters with me this time and they gave you high rating also.

Everything was 5 star especially the service( as usual).BUT the noise level was horrendous! There was 8 of us at the table and we all had a very difficult time hearing each other. I do not remember this being a problem before. ??

I have eaten at Grill 23 many times but sadly this time I was disappointed. All our mains were overlooked whereas in the past everything was perfect. Two orders of salmon, one swordfish and one filet steak and not one done as requested.

Took our sons and their wives to Grill 23 to celebrate Father's Day. The restaurant was very accommodating as we got to the city early so they parked our car so we could enjoy the Back Bay for a little shopping and pre-dinner drink. Upon arrival we were seated immediately. The service was second to none and the food was delicious. I shared a steak with one of my daughter-in-laws and they were more than happy to serve it separately. All the appetizers and veggies were delicious as well. It was a wonderful evening, enjoyed by all of us. It was even more enjoyable for our sons and spouses as the children were home with babysitters!
We will be back again.

This was our first time at Grill 23 and we were extremely pleased. We expected excellent food, and we were not disappointed. Each entree was cooked to perfection. What really set Grill 23 apart for our family was the outstanding service. We loved that we were never rushed through any portion of our meal. As we were having a mini family reunion for an early Father's Day, we had plenty of time to catch up and linger over each course of the meal. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive. This was unexpected as it was a very busy Saturday night with not an empty table in sight. We will most definitely return to Grill 23!
